Fishing – keep what you catch at Loganlea


Loganlea owner Karen Jack has brought back her any method ticket which will run from Monday, October 14 until Sunday, November 3, weather permitting.

You keep what you catch at Loganlea (pictured) and the cost is £25 for the day.

Anyone fishing fly only will be able to fish for the day for £10 and that is catch and return only.

The opening hours are 9am to 5pm and it is bank fishing only as all boats are now out of the water.

It is the third year that Karen has hosted the promotion and it has been successful in the previous two.

She said: “The aim is to clear out fish and not leave them for cormorants which come in over the winter.

“Anglers can use any method, bait, ledger and even fly and they keep what they catch. It does not matter what size the fish are.”

And there are fish to be had. One angler hooked a 5lb Tiger trout just outside Karen’s HQ in his second cast at the weekend.

She added: “We’ll keep going until November 3 if we can but it all depends on the weather.”

Meanwhile, Glencorse Reservoir above Flotterstone is now closed for the season.

Owner Bill Taylor said he will re-open on March 21 and contact glencorse1@outlook.com for bookings and information.

The winter league run by Edinburgh and Lothians Coarse Anglers starts on Saturday at Orchill.

Meanwhile, Gus Brindle has confirmed there will be a UKCC L1 course running at Crawfurdland Fishery, Craufurdland Estate, Kilmarnock KA3 6BS on the weekend of 16/17 November.

Places are available and the cost is £186 but there is a £70 bursary available from sportscotland to offset the cost.

Anyone interested in becoming a coach and completing the course should get in touch with Gus at chairman@sfca.co.uk or on his mobile 07812 241816 as soon as possible.
